Discover the lovely walks of La Clape, near Gruissan, and Narbonne, in Aude, Languedoc

For a quiet meditative walk, or a walk in the shade on a hot Summer's day - go to the Sailors Cemetery at Notre Dame Des Auzils, on the side of La Clape, near Gruissan, on a small country road, off the road between Narbonne and Gruissan.

Here there are plenty of places to sit or explore - for people in these parts have been around since the dawn of man - with homes in caves from prehistoric times, as well as the more recent hermitages, and lovely chapels.

This is a good place for a picnic.
